Our Transport Officers handle over 95% of Alaska’s mental health in-custody transports, to and from Correctional and Medical Facilities. From the bush in Alaska to the lower 48, our officers are ready to respond. Before being placed in the field, we put our officers through a rigorous selection course in which candidates are put through non-stop Psychological and Physical Testing. Upon completion, candidates become certified in the following: Hands-on (physical) and hands-off (verbal) de-escalation techniques, application of multiple restraint systems – to include handcuffs, belly-chains, and leg restraints. Officers are assigned police-barricaded Ford Taurus Interceptors and are on-call, 24 hours a day, seven days per week. We maintain the ability to respond to any call at a moment’s notice.
SITE AND PERSONAL SECURITY
Our Personal Security Officers are called into service for situations such as: high-threat employee layoffs, threats from disgruntled employees, threats of workplace violence, recovery after a violent act at the workplace, or protecting property or resources. Our Officers come from our deep pool of prior Military and Law Enforcement professionals. At WEKA, we believe every job is different. There is no “one size fits all” for security. Our certified instructors will build and tailor a team to your specific needs. There is no job too large or too small. Our experts will leverage our personnel, equipment, technology, and resources to meet your stated goal.
Too often we see acts of violence against hospitals and other healthcare facilities, stemming from both internal and external threats. Whether it’s a disgruntled former employee, an emotionally distraught grieving family member, or an uncooperative patient, we are ready to counter any threat. We train our officers in various patient interaction programs such as: Non-Abusive Psychological and Physical Intervention (NAPPI), Verbal Judo, and the MANDT System. With that training, they are ready to confront and navigate through any threats from patients and visitors alike. Our officers are also trained in the use of CCTV Operation and Video Monitoring and Recording. Our officers are ready to respond to a wide variety of of mental health crises or emergencies, anywhere on the property, armed or unarmed.
Whether you’re an Insurance Adjuster needing eyes on a claimant, or a property owner suspecting illegal activity from your tenants, our Surveillance Officers will work with you to package and implement a plan to meet your goals. Our Officers are trained using the latest technologies and practices and will stay out of sight to get you the information you seek.
